Preface

We eat food in the gross form. Digestion consists of reducing the large sized food items into very small molecules which can be absorbed into the blood and digested by cells of the body. The process of digestion starts outside the body. Grinding and cooking constitute the initial stages of digestion. Chewing and digestion of food with the help of digestive juices constitute digestion of food inside the body.

After digestion, food is converted into amino acids, fatty acids, glycerine and glucose. These molecules are further digested by body cells.

Ayurveda describes the qualities of food as hot, cold, heavy, light, etc. The scientific meaning of these is described well in this book. Forcing a child to eat food is the main cause of digestive I disturbances in children while eating food in excess is the main cause of digestive disturbances in adults, e.g. gastroenteritis, peptic ulcer.

The diseases of the gastrointestinal tract mainly loss of appetite, peptic ulcer, gastroenteritis, malabsorption, indigestion, dysentery, pain in the abdomen, constipation, anal fissure, piles and worm infestation are described in detail in this book. The Ayurvedic approach and treatment of these diseases are given in detail here. Factors which affect the digestive tract and digestive power are elucidated in detail. How to maintain the digestive tract healthy and prevent diseases of the digestive tract are given in detail in this book. Ayurveda refers to digestive power as ‘digestive fire’ and considers ‘fire’ as the deity of the digestive tract. This book will prove useful to doctors, vaidyas as well as medical students. All should study this book and follow the rules and restrictions to keep their digestive tract healthy.

We pray unto Agnidevata (deity of Fire) to bestow up everyone a long, happy, healthy, prosperous and benevolent life.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
